Default Daily Driver Rodeo C-Pillar Wall - 8*12s

Hello Ladies and Gents,
Gonna use this to intro myself a little since I am new....feel free to skip and look at pictures

First time build log, First time wall build and a bunch more first, get the popcorn and sit back to watch me fall all over myself during my first big build.

Doing a C-pillar wall in my 91-92 Rodeo, mainly doing this build to break ground. I have never done a build this large and I have never done some of the things needed to complete this build. So I am using it as my beginners project. I have spent the last 12 years on/off installing my own electronics and friends stuff, everything from basic upgrades to TVs and under the window multi woofer enclosures, and have been doing research and studying the whole time. I figured it was time to step my game up and I came up with the plan to do a budget wall build and go about it piece by piece taking notes the whole time. I am hoping that by the end of this I will be ready for some big boy equipment.

So, on to the good stuff..This is my Frankinbeast - I call it "WhiteNoise"
It is composed of all the audio stuff I collected whilst being broke as a joke....

All work is done by me at home, exhaust was only thing, I borrowed my buddies shop so I could use the lift and not weld laying on my back.

White 92-91 Rodeo, 3.1 v6 4x4, 5 speed.
-New clutch 6mnths, new front driveshafts and hub inners 3mnths, New rear end inners 2mnths, New air shocks for Wall build 1mnth...
-New windshield 3mnths, same crappy tan interior that came in it....FML is not Priceless
-Custom exhaust - more because my old exhaust was falling off
-I have painted all the exterior trim and underbody black
-Tinted windows
-Got 2 sets wheels and tires - one chrome/mud and the other black/street
-Installed Viper alarm and door locks
-Air shocks in the back running 50lbs psi, max is 120lbs psi - good for 1900lbs
-LED dome lights - white, had HIDs but ballast blew, so hyper white bulbs for now. Gonna do a 2004 Rodeo front end swap so I can have clear headlight housings and get HIDs back again. A number of Dent repair and re weld the driverside back door seal. It had rusted out.
-Shaved the antenna off the front fender are relocated behind fender, antennas are in my OP

Electrical...
AutoCraft Gold G34 battery - 160amp rebuilt stock alt. - JuiceBox Black Cherry soon...
7 - C&D UPS12-200FR 54Ah model.
I need, another alt or bigger one

4ga and 8ga for the PX4.580 and Kenwood amp,
Got 14ga OFC on all highs and mids
Subs - 12ga Sky High Car Audio Wire
Execution Audio 0ga 100ft Blue and Orange
8 db link 250 amp anl fuses and holders

AT 80mil deadener and poly-fil in all the body holes.

Audio stuff...
What I have now...
Kenwood KDC-X996
Front Stage:
SoundStream PX4.580
2 - 10" GRS Woofer
2 - 6x8 KS Components w/ 1" tweets
2 - SSMB 6.5 Midbass
2 - 3" Tweeter horns
2 - 1" Silk Dome tweets
Rear Stage:
Kenwood KAC5204 350.2
2 - 6.5 components w/ 1" tweets with passive crossovers
Sub Stage:
2 - AQ2200D.1 gonna run one until I get more electrical
8 - Hifonics ZRX12D4 - 12" dual 4ohm
17.5 cu ft after displacement 26 before, 34 hz tuning


And now pictures.....Warning Rookie ahead...



The foam you can see is not factory foam it is from a recording booth in a studio
You can see my doors with just the 6x8s
Here is when I first put in the PX4.580
Wire Spagetti you can see 3" tweeter horn with the crossovers I soldered on the back
following pic is my dad cutting hole for 10", he cut that one I cut the other one.















I mocked the whole box up and put sub in and everything before disassembling and beginning fiberglass and Bondo.
The entire box will be fiber glassed and then Bondo where needed and upholstered so I don't need it to be perfect.

More to come....being lazy on uploading pictures.
But between the fiberglass that is done so far and all the metal corner bracket -roughly 30 brackets inside and out lol-, then 2" screws here and there and 2 - 5/8's threaded rods -one up and one side2side-
This bad boy does not flex a bit when you push on the panels

I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

^^^^^Thanks
More pics
Zeus got woven tinsel leads



These next ones are where I mocked everything up so there are some rough lines and what not, but it shows the design. This let me see it make sure I knew where everything would be and then I could remove baffles and glass inside of box. 1st time fiberglassing anything ever!!!!





I got a flat filler piece that goes in between the two baffles in the middle.
Going to do flush mount pieces wherever I can fit them, mainly since I can not fit full 2nd baffle.


As for today, I got all the air bubbles, from my first couple tries at fiberglass cut out and re-glassed. Followed by the 2nd coat of resin on the back half of box and first rough layer of bondo in. I am going to sand it and then another layer of Bondo to smooth the corners out and then more layers of resin.


The Bondo is mainly to make it rounded in the corners. It is not 45s but not square either. I am just filling the corner and running my finger down it to get a nice rounded bead.

After that I will put the baffles back in and start resin and bondo on them. Looks like I could have it playing by the end of this weekend. I still need wire and batteries, I'm an idiot I know.:lol Advance Auto parts was supposed to be getting actaul AGM sealed batteries, like a line of them and I was waiting on that b/c family in the store big discount!!!!!

What do you think? Your a MIME!!!! Get out of that box you fool!

Functional - Yes
Comfortable - No
It already has 2" raisers on the bottom so the amps fit with with a 1/2" gap for air flow. Ran outside and grab that pic of the blocks
I will be raising the back of the seat 6" and moving it forward 1", this way the port will firer through the gap. I am not sure the effect that will cause on port length, since it is a seat not a piece of wood. but gonna try and see what it does with seat in and out.

I have zero problems with people having a shop or other enthusiast do their build. But it's a little disrespectful they take credit for it and/or don't correct people when they assume the owner did the work. Happens all the time.
